Parkour, District 13, and Top Gear

Now, suddenly, it seems that the sport of Parkour (also known as Freerunning) has turned up a few times in the last few days, firstly, the spectacular film “District 13” (which, if you put up with the subtitles, boasts some amazing action), and then in the BBC’s Top Gear – which included a race between a Pug 207 and a couple of UK Freerunners

Amazing to see what these guys can do – even if that site does spoil the illusion, as the race apparrently took 4 days to film… not the 30 or so minutes that are supposed to have elapsed. It’s still spectacular
